Not too weird. I like both. I normally love "girl Lucy names", including Lucy, Lucia, Lucinda, Lucille and Lucilla - but don't like Lucien and similar male names. Yet, this one feels different. It actually seems masculine. Lucien never has to me, which is why Lucienne, the female version, seems more attractive.

"Lucretius" reminds me of the word "ludicrous".
